    I did a quick look and compared the site selling D. falconeri to PFT and it didn't appear to me that the other site overlapped PFT's target market. PFT is aimed at those just getting started in CPs and the other is aimed at the more experienced or more adventurous growers who hopefully have deep pockets. Still, use discretion before posting a URL of a possible competitor to PFT.

    They've also posted these for sale on eBay and the shipping is $1 cheaper there...

    I ordered one the very second I got the email! Woo!

    Hopefully they'll ship it today and it'll get to me on Wednesday. Finally I get to grow this wonderful plant

    Ok, i received my plant today which is very prompt shipping.
    The size is as promised at a good 2 inches plus. Nice number of leaves.
    The one negative is that it did get bumped around alot despite some shredded stuff taped over the top of the pot. The problem was the rootball was somewhat loose in the pot so it got banged a bit.
    I think they could have packed a little more secure.
    The plant will survive though.....

    Lgecko, did you get yours? how did it fare?

    I got my plant yesterday and it's definitely a good quality D. falconeri. Good size and it appears quite healthy, although like you said, my plant also suffered from weird (possibly shipping related) abuse. It almost looks like the plant wasn't planted in the pot with enough soil, because there's a good 1-2 cm gap between the soil and the pot, leaving the chunk of soil that the plant is potted in to freely bounce back and forth.

    I'm wondering if I should just add some peat to the sides...Either way, very nice plant and I'm pleased with my purchase.

    lgecko, sounds like your's was packed like mine. I know what you mean when you say gap around sides of pot. I ended up potting it in slight smaller square pot. I was worried the gap would dry out the rootball.

    See, I want to keep the plant in its current pot. I just don't know how I'm going to add peat to it without messing it up. Do you think it'd be wise to just leave it be and not worry about it?

    Why not use sand instead of peat? Dry sand pours and fills really easy and petiolaris complex like sand in my experience. Just an idea
